Tricky doesn’t describe green color:)
i can paint good green squares, but when it comes to put green over existing washes it totally changes everything. Especially over desert color landscapes.

Here are some combinations suggested by Geoff Kersey:
Cobalt + Aureolin = bright green
Cobalt + Aureolin + small dab of Raw sienna = medium green
Aureolin + Ultramarine + Burnt Sienna = dark olive green
Viridian + Ultramarine + Burnt Sienna = dark green
Viridian + Cobalt Violet = gray/green
Raw Sienna + Phthalo (red shade) +Cobalt = light olive green

Thank you Paula for green color combinations! I wrote them down for my little reminder tips. Without them I just do usual same mistakes over again.

Nicely painted, Alex. Atmosphere of being in the forest captured well.
And thank you Paula for your combinations. You know how to make greens sing in a painting looking your latest post!
